NeNe Leakes moves on from “Real Housewives of Atlanta” to star in ABC’s “To Tell The Truth.” Shortly after announcing her departure from the Bravo reality series, Leakes revealed her plans to move forward by teaming up with Betty White for the revival of the ’50’s game show.
“Fans will get to see me be really happy, witty and funny and tell all of those one-liners that I have said on [Housewives],” she said after asking fans via social media if they were excited to see “something different” that they’ve “never seen me do before.”
“To Tell the Truth” marks Leakes’ first official TV booking since announcing that Season 7 of “RHOA” will be her last. “Being part of RHOA has been a big part of my life but I’m excited for new the beginnings I am pursuing and embarking upon. Thank you so much to everyone who has watched and supported me over the years on this amazing platform,” Leakes told Us Weekly in a statement on Monday, June 29. “With lots of thought and prayer I’ve decided to step out on faith and not fear.”
ABC will air six episodes in which Leakes, 47, White, 93, and two other celebrity panelists will try to guess which of three contestants are lying and who is telling the truth. As with the throwback game show, each person will claim to have the same talent, job, or achievement. Will you be watching?
